I see "GPC detected" popups every minute or so. I want to keep GPC, but how can I stop those annoying popups?

Keep in mind that GPC is only a signal to a website (it adds a Sec-GPC:1 header similar to DNT:1 for do-not-track), it is up to a website to honor such a request.

You can disable GPC by unticking "Tell websites not to sell or share my data" in settings.

Your answer doesn't address the problem of unwanted GPC popups. If you know of a way to stop them from popping up, please let me know

Can you attach a screenshot of this popup? Does it occur on a specific website?

It annoys me how this forum allows user to post issues without proving basic needed info.  ;-/

Here is the GPC popup I want to get rid of. I still want GPC, but not this popup.

It appears on a number of pages. I use Firefox browser, and GPC is enabled on Firefox.

Steps to replicate and a full browser screenshot would be more helpful. Just showing a screenshot leaves me wonder what is generating this message. More detail please. smh Why is it so hard to show what you're doing before getting this pop-up?!
